I was waiting for my sister, who was at the DMV. I took a walk down Main Street and on my way back I saw this photograph on the ground. It hadn’t been there 15 minutes earlier. On the back it is dated 1977. It sure looks it, too.
FOUND by Laura P. between Charlotte and Emerald Isle, North Carolina
As a North Carolina native and having spent my whole life there, I had liked to think that I knew eveything about it; but, sometimes you can get deep into the countryside and find things so authentic and so foreign that you feel like you are in a completely different country. This was found at a gas station somewhere between Charlotte and Emerald Isle.
Found this while looking for clipboards in the Maitland Art Center’s least used storage room, the “scary room.” Written on a piece of canvas and shoved REALLY deep in a box full of little tissue paper squares. I wonder what the emergency was!
Got the most bizarre stalker postcard in my mailbox today. It’s addressed for the previous tenant (*phew*), a Mr. D. Snodgrass. The front is completely hand inked with metallic craft pen and the whole thing is chunky with decoupage glue. Looks like a lot of lonely went into this.
